Make-up Tutorial: Simple Statement Make-up

One day (the last day one of my classmates were going to be studying in our university 'cause she's going to Taiwan) I wore my maxi-dress and thought that it would be too un-glam to wear it without make-up. And I found this lipstick in my mum's make-up drawer and decided to just go with it.

Simplicity but definition is the key to the look, though there is a lot to improve on =P

Here's a revised look. The focus is mainly on the lips, complimented by strong brows and matte skin. What I used for the original impromptu look was powder foundation, the lipstick and brow pencil.

I filmed my first ever video make-up tutorial =D

Here's the product list:

The video is filmed with my Sony AVCHD Handycam by myself, so sometimes the main subject just disappears out of frame. Edited with Windows Live Movie Maker, and my editing skills still need immense improvement. Yoroshiku~


  1. Hello :D The first one here ! Nice tutorial, jiayou :)I didnt know that you have a blog!

    xox, c

  2. HELLO! Your tutorial is not bad, simple and clear. My suggest is reducing the video length to 8 mins max because not many people prefer more than 8 mins makeup videos (after research lah). BUTTTT YOUR FIRST TUT IS BETTER THAN MINE HAHA! I really have NO IDEA how to take video tut because my camera doesn't come with a front screen. :D Maybe you should teach me how! XD
